Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slurpuff from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Slurpuff is a stage 1, fairy type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy retreat cost. Slurpuff's Ability is called Sweet Veil and says that each of your Pokemon that have fairy type energy cards attached to them can't be affected by special conditions. Besides the Ability, Slurpuff just has one move called Draining Kiss, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fairy and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus heals 30 damage from Slurpuff.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Slurpuff is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Swirlix into play (I reviewed Swirlix from this set yesterday) and then evolve Swirlix into Slurpuff. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Swirlix was a very good basic Pokemon card and if you were building a fairy type deck, that card could easily be used as a starter type Pokemon. Because of this, you can easily use Swirlix on its own and the main reason you'd want to use Slurpuff is for its Ability, so I would for sure add 1 or 2 Slurpuff cards to your deck and mainly keep them on the bench to utilize their Ability. Of course if/when you get Slurpuff into the active Pokemon spot your only choice will be to use Draining Kiss every turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set. I really like Slurpuff's Ability which will help out almost every Pokemon on your team if they all require fairy type energy cards to use and because Draining Kiss does heal damage from Slurpuff, you can use a minimal number of Slurpuff cards in your deck and still have them make a big impact. Overall, I would give both Swirlix and Slurpuff a 4 out of 5 rating, both cards individually were 4 out of 5s.
